A while back, I shared my kinda-sorta race calendar. It has changed a few times and I expect it to keep changing but this change is an exciting one! I’ve added the St Louis Track Club Half Marathon to my calendar!
I wanted to make this year the year of local races and with the exception of a few Rock ‘n’ Roll Races (save $15 with code MomsLRB), I’m sticking with my plan.
I’m running Go! St. Louis this weekend. 5K on Saturday and Half on Sunday. It was actually meant to be my “Goal” race and I’m still hoping that I can push it pretty hard but I’ve got a couple fast followers that I’ll use if it doesn’t workout.
AND if I spend all summer working on speed and endurance, than maybe I can get my goal by the newest race I’ve added to my calendar.
On my birthday, I’m going to start the day with 13.1 with hundreds of my closest running buddies right here in STL. I’ve signed on to share all the goodness of this race with you all! So consider coming to St. Louis and running with me! I’ll have SNACKS!! AND I can even offer you 10% your registration with code: MomsLRB. That’s right. IF you sign up soon, you can run this race for less than $50! Come on…what more reason do you need?!
Well, if you need another reason, know that the money that the St. Louis Track Club (which I’m a member of) raises, will go to help local police as they support Special Olympics.
I’ve run this race once before and I love it because it has a completely different route and shows off some areas of the Lou that you probably don’t get a chance to see very often.
Do you run local? What’s your favorite local race? Where and when is it?
